    What did you have in mind? An actual Transformer(s) or just a faction symbol(s)?

    take your idea to the artist, bring a bunch of pictures, if they're even remotely half way decent they should be able to bring your idea to life.

    Hey thanks.

    I was thinking maybe something like this:
    [​IMG]

    or this:

    [​IMG]

    inside a cog or gear, sort of like the ROTF Mech Alive symbol, just make it a little more....dark and sinister? Maybe have 2 cogs beside it, one on the top on one side and one on the bottom on the opposite side.

    I was also thinking the main gear could have ancient cybertronian inscribed on it.

    This is the best advice. Anything you bring if the artist is any good he's going to redraw it anyway. Not to mention just because you bring in a piece of art You think would be a good tattoo, doesn't mean it would Actually be a good tattoo.

    There's a lot of things to consider. Size, placement, line values, etc. Many things. Things that a tattoo artist knows about, that people (and yes, even artists) don't know about.

    Just go to a good artist, tell him what you want, and he should be able to draw it with no problems.

    Besides, you want an artist putting permanent work into your skin, not a tracer.

    Looks pretty good as a black and grey. I wouldn't add color personally. You've got a D'con symbol, a flesh rip, and internal gear/bio mech looking things inside, add more or add color and it might really distract even more from the D'con symbol, which I assume is suppose to be the center of the piece and where the eye us supposed to be drawn to.

    Looks cool.

    I'd put up pics of mine, but I get paranoid posting tattoo pics on the internet. That's a good way for your custom tattoos to get printed out and put on other people. (and I spend way too much time designing them to have them be worn by others.)

    Never get tired of seeing TF tattoos though.
